Rene S. Perez II and Diana Alvarez are both writers from South Texas. Both hailing from Corpus Christi, this fiction writer and poet have ventured out/run away from a home that both of them work to create, report, and make sense of through art.
While they have ventured out to California and Massachusetts and New York, each has a sense of truth and creativity that is very much informed by their home by the bay. While each artist is Texas, through and through, their stories and poems aim to illumine truths that travel past borders and venture out past distances that they could ever hope to wander.
Come hear these emerging Tejana/o writers read from their published collections: Along These Highways (University of Arizona Press) and By Way Of (Toadlily Press).
